Heavy Scandinavian humor

To the query'Scandinavian humor'Yandex, as an example, provides only 4 absolutely matching links. One of them is done nonsense, your second creates a overview of Erlend Lou's literary creation, which really has quite adequate humor - Volvo Trucks, the third - on the entry in LiveJournal together with the wording'heavyweight Scandinavian humor ', the last to your certain forum to the niche'Norman theory and Scandinavian humor ', and I didnrrrt see anything about humor directly. The image is symptomatic, right?

To put it briefly, when the descendants in the Vikings have humor, it is extremely peculiar. Certainly not the Russian folk "three ha-ha" rather than maybe the idiotic Bin from Foggy Albion, very understandable and towards the Russian soul.

Now, we must also remember the belief that the characters will humor in'The Most Important Boss'on the suggestion and under the strict guidance of your well-known many-something-fob Lars Trier, the carrier from the proudly attached prefix'von ', which in is funny if have a concept of ​​some facts around the director's biography and his previous film works.

However, Trier, famous for his unbridled film innovation, having filmed films coming from all imaginable and inconceivable genres, applying mystical legends in hospital interiors, ending with social drama against the backdrop of an black backdrop, complacently not to mention transferred his efforts for the comedy genre, as the only virgin soil, hitherto remaining unplowed. However, many viewers, studying the "fresh" Trier, will understand that they have no a sense humor. Or Dane doesn't always have it. "And that is more probable," we say to them in consolation.

The plot is straightforward: the director of the certain mid-range IT company hires an unemployed actor to effectively and convincingly portray the "most essential boss" anyway, who won't appear in nature, who originates towards the Danish kingdom to examine his own company, for an average fee. Everything.

Sixty minutes and forty minutes of screen time "the principle boss" gets to funny troubles on the boltological nature, moving into conflicts and about close relations with a cubicle employees (6 "old people" with respect for gender balance), having an ex-girlfriend, by having an Icelander, with a company ... 4 times the writer himself intervenes while in the events, while using the confident voice of the creator "exposing" the comedy for the viewer, voicing and illustrating the laws of your genre's existence.

Generally, the humor in "The Most Important Boss" ought to be WANTED to see. I needed to, and it was funny to me. Not all the time, she didn't tear her tummies, but you can find sufficient truly funny situations. And the atmosphere of an original absurdity is very successfully supported by the image, whose originality is born, apparently, to the Automavision, invented by Trier, because no living and healthy operator would dare to shoot like that. In many cases in the heart of the frame you will find a doorway, then a pc monitor, then only half on the character's face, uttering remarks. Feeling that you lives its life, regardless of characters. And computer system courses funny.

To say that the picture is minimalistic is to say nothing! In "Boss" we view a sort of hi-tech from the cinema: white smooth walls, office furniture - completely straight lines and standard colors, equipment for your office, judging by way of the disposition while in the frame, playing the title role, faces and figures of characters.

It is clear by using a very ascetic plot and scenery, the audience's interest automatically shifts towards the characters within the film and what people say (to an inferior extent, what they are doing). To "keep" the interest and attention of people, you should PLAY! Plus they are playing.

One cannot but praise, 123movies of course, Jens Albinus, whose surprisingly stupid and touching face, "The principle boss" owes a big amount of his success. The roles of losers and bungler look nice in the performance of just such guys, causing sympathy and slight annoyance at precisely the same time.

An interesting fact could be the presence inside the casting of the director from the heavyweight, affectionately accepted back then "Angels with the Universe", the Icelander Fridrik Thor Fridriksson from the role of a business partner, in addition to a potential buyer of this whole office, completely indefatigable and uncontrollable, damn HOT (huh) and very undiplomatic Icelandic uncle Finnur. The role is small, but very striking.

Of the girls, perhaps, I have to praise the "real blonde" Iben Yail, who's going to be still remembered by me for the role from the hysterical Scandinavian girlfriend on the character John Cusack in Stephen Frears'"High Fidelity", along with a good game in "Dogme-95" No. 3 - "Mifune's Last Song" ... Excellent madama. P-ara could be where she needed to - would've settled in Hollywood with millions of royalties.

In lieu of conclusions.

The movie is funny and original, yet not without an affordable level of boredom. Using a comedy, pure water just isn't drawn, but quite watchable, or else at 2 am. I wouldn't recommend it to everyone and everyone, but fans of Trier's antics will, I think, be satisfied. As, however, and connoisseurs of oh-oh-very subtle, hardly noticeable humor. Anyone who wishes to fool around and discover how cinematic geniuses apply it - you are welcome! That way.
